This double exposure tip is commonly used. It's very easy and the effects are always amazing. But I wish to include a small detail - allowing a few seconds to elapse before taking the second shot to allow it to be slightly different from the first shot.
Take your first shot. What are you looking for? The image should have high contrast, interesting patterns and shadows, preferably at the lower portion; which is where your second exposure will come out. Then flip your camera by making a 180º turn. Shoot your second shot. Clicking the shutter button may feel awkward but you’ll get used to it.
In the photos above, the second exposure was taken seconds after the first shot so the exposure below is not an exact duplicate of the first shot. If you are shooting a static landscape and are stationary, you can also get interesting effects like these photos.
In the end, it really depends how similar or different you want your doubles, just wait a bit before shooting the second exposure. It’s a question of style, preference and luck. Have fun and say “the world is flat” through your vertical flip doubles.
Misadventures of Stitch Stitch completely changed the image of what an alien is. He is generally friendly but picky with friends and you definitely don't want him as an enemy. Earth has been his new home and his boundless energy can sometimes give him trouble, especially if Lilo isn't around to pull his reins. Even if he is an experiment that has gone bad, we are lucky to have him around to entertain children (he loves children).
La Sardina Taste Test Everyone loves sardines for breakfast. It's an ordinary meal that goes with rice and vinegar. The La Sardina isn't your staple camera but after shooting my first roll, I can't wait to shoot my next roll, having figured out (more or less) it's strengths and weaknesses and what I seemed to have done wrong (like forgetting I'm in bulb mode, heh).
Vignettes of My Friends' Wedding My friends asked me to cover their wedding in "lomo". I was also a secondary sponsor so it was a bit challenging. I had to be discrete so I used my LC-A+ and a couple of Fuji slides to get the job done.
